    Wow, shots across the bow for the rest of the 1080ti pricing.

    Not even a second thought....1080-Ti is going to my 2700x, and the 980-Ti is going to my 6700k.

    wow, now I didn't expect 1080TI's to drop in price really at all. Nvidia doesn't usually offer close out prices - perhaps their partners do?

    I've got that same style card but in 1080 flavor.

    Very happy with it so far. I haven't even needed or wanted to touch the clocks or fan profile.

    Geez...a Vega 64 for $599 or a 1080-Ti for $530.....God..I love AMD, but they have got to get a handle on their GPU prices....I miss the days when they offered almost the same performance for about half the price (I'm remembering the Radeon 4870 for $300 coming darn close to the $600 GTX-280).....

    Gotta see benches on the 2070 first. The prices may drop even further if the 1080Ti is slower.

    This really wouldn't be a bad purchase... if it outperformed the 2070

    anyone a little suspicious about the seller? not that many reviews. The prices are great and i guess you are covered since its amazon and prime and all that.

    The 1080 Ti is going to be markedly faster than the 2080 in every measurable way EXCEPT when "RTX" features are enabled in supported games. Never mind the 2070.

    This is dumb logic, even without RTX features the 20 series will be much faster. Not even Nvidia is this stupid.

    It's not dumb logic. It's basic arithmetic.

    If the CUDA core architecture is unchanged from Pascal, and I believe it is, then the 2080's 2904 CUDA Cores at 1710 MHz is going to be about 10% slower than 1080Ti's 3584 at 1582 MHz.

    So unless they found a way to leverage tensor and RT cores in standard rasterization pipelines (in other words without "RTX" integration) then the 2080 is going to be a little bit slower than the 1080Ti.

    True, but the seller has an 82% rating--great compared to the best major league baseball hitter of all-time, but not so great as an Amazon seller. Even with the A-Z protection, your money is still tied up for a substantial time while you go through the "contact seller, wait a few days, file claim, wait for judgement, finally get your money back" schtick. I'd pass.

    Tempting, but the pricing makes me wonder if the 2070 is going to end up matching the 1080Ti like with the previous generation (1070 ≈ 980Ti).

    You know, I hope so...worked for me last time....I got the Zotac Amp 980-Ti AMP EXTREME!!! and it seems to have kept up with the GTX1070 pretty well. Hoping the same for the 1080-Ti AMP...

    Looking at the CUDA core gap, I don't see how that's possible.

    GDDR6 is an unknown - compared to GDDR5X

    Sorry, a bit more memory bandwidth isn't going to bridge a 55% CUDA gap. I believe your 1080 TI will look good for a while.

    What gaming video card has GDDR6 that you are using as a benchmark reference?

    Ok, enough of this. Even the initial PRs are saying the 2070 is only faster than the 1080, not the TI. Believe what you want.

    It's possible Black Friday will have these going for even sub-$500.

    Yes, but not from any of the big companies. You'd have to buy a block fro Ali Express if you want to watercool it.

    I just bought a new open box GTX 1080 to replace a 1060 (should be a big upgrade, no?) for my Linux box @ $259 OTD.....good times!

    1080Ti pricing will go up when the 2080 / Ti flops come out for more money. $800 2080 with 1080ti performance (or less?) with added Ray tracing.

    AMD flopped with VEGA, Nvidia will flop this time with Turning.

    If I were in the market, this wouldn't give me warm fuzzies. I'm not confident on how well those cheap blocks work.

    I'm not sure about it flopping, but I could see it being the same or similar performance and only adding in ray tracing. It will hook the "gotta-haves" but not the mainstream folks.

    After finding the block I went down the rabbit hole of researching cheap Chinese watercooling. Byski blocks, the company that makes the Amp block, seems okay from what I’ve seen (H did a review of their Threadripper block) but it is definitely not the most comforting thought risking high end parts on something like that.

    Agreed, and I would think if you're ok with ZOTAC you are probably not the most quality-conscious person anyway, as I consider them in a somewhat lower tier from the top guys.

    I'm not sure that even matters much. The zoltac extreme stuff has very good reviews on cooling and as far as read performance between any of these cards ---- flip a coin.

    :D

    eVGA SC2 @ $599 from B&H - I'm told this is eligible for Step-Up for 90 days.

    Gonna wait a bit myself to upgrade. Hopefully this eases the pain of the gamers after all the mining.
